EETC Accredits State Technical College of Missouri, Power Equipment Program


In an effort to increase the amount of power equipment technicians for our industry, the Equipment & Engine Training Council has recently reaccredited State Technical College of Missouri located in Linn, Missouri.  This retains the number of accredited power equipment training programs to 78 throughout the US and Canada. 

The training at State Technical College of Missouri is a comprehensive two-year hands-on program that emphasizes Outdoor Power Equipment engine systems, hydraulics and drive trains, and AC & DC electrical systems. Graduating students receive an Associate Degree with 68-71 credit hours. Critical Thinking, Math, Communication and Science Reasoning are also a strong part of the training curriculum.

                  

“We are very excited to become an accredited training program with the EETC,” said Tony DeBoeuf, department chair and instructor at State Technical College of Missouri. “Building a strong personal relationship with manufacturers and industry associations like Kohler, Hydro-Gear, and EETC can only help our students become more successful when they graduate and take their place in the power equipment industry.” DeBoeuf said.

Visiting State Technical College of Missouri for its on-site audit was Greg Herpin, Territory Sales Manager, Medart Inc. a Kohler Engine distributor; and Erik Sides, Executive Director, Equipment & Engine Training Council, Inc.  “I’m very impressed with the power equipment program and facilities at the college, having an EETC accredited program in our own back yard will help us to connect Medart’s servicing power equipment dealers with a qualified and industry certified technician” Herpin said

 The Equipment & Engine Training Council is a non-profit professional association that is addressing the critical shortage of service technicians through its school accreditation and EETC technician certification programs.  The EETC is a member in good standing of the National Certification Commission.
